Help to end my attachment/dependency on my father (M 30s)

Hello all,

I’m a guy in my 30s dealing with some issues around my father. I hope other folks can relate and share some experience and guidance.

About my father: he lost his own dad early in life and never had a stepfather. He was raised by his mother, grandparents and extend family. They were often poor. I’ve always felt my father to be distant and uninvolved in my life. He was usually present at ...

Urge to watch my baby suffer

I was very hesitant about putting this out on the internet, but it's worrying me more and becoming more frequent.

Over a week ago my wife and I had our first baby, a beautiful girl named Emily. For the first week I just wanted to look at her, hold her, and be with her as much as possible. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, I suddenly got this very intoxicating feeling whenever she cried intensely. This ...

Looking for community support & people to talk to

Hi everyone
I'm somewhat recently out of a relationship where I was the recipient of domestic violence. My ex parnter had CPTSD from being physically, verbally, and emotionally abused by her father and emotionally and at times physically neglected by her mother. I'm arranging to see a new counselor soon is is trauma-informed and works with domestic violence, hopefully this will be more helpful than my previous therapist.

Its a difficult story to retell, but ...

Anxiety and Stress Relief Items

There are so many different places this could go. Hopefully it may help others being here. Please change as needed.

We use a lot of different items to help relieve anxiety stress, anger and other emotions. Often we are fiddling with something and have to keep our hands busy.

We have a soft rubber crackle toy that helps with anger because of the sound it makes. Harder stress balls to squeeze. We quite like soft ...

Explain this experience to me.

I have a friend with similar self esteem issues. We are both quite critical of ourselves. I'm a natural skeptic of all things spiritual or otherworldly so I'm wondering what this experience means....

I had a repeating dream in childhood. A little girl walking through a field, picking wild flowers. I know the girl is me. Behind her, I can see there is a horrible black cloud following her. She is completely unaware. It's hard ...

Any recommendations as to how to outright end hallucinations

I’ve been hallucinating almost non-stop for over 400 days. Visual, auditory, tactile, gustatory, even chronoceptive hallucinations. I’m hallucinating right now as I write this. Luckily, the hallucinations aren’t quite as intense so as to prevent me from perceiving and interacting with the real world. My next appointment with my therapist is next month and with my psychiatrist is in July. As I write this I’m seeing apparitions and hearing voices commenting on what I’m writing ...

Denial and accepting/facing harsh truths

What's name for condition where people refuse (either unable or unwilling) to accept the truth/facts, when it is something they don't like or want to be true. And instead just ignore it or lookaway (as if it will somehow change the truth/FACT, when it won't.)

For example: hypothetically speaking, let's say that we find out for a FACT (that we can prove using science) that if you live a happy life, you go to Hell. ...

Are you feeling the spring spirit?

I always love spring. There's something about it that lifts up my mood, and maybe somehow, makes me less depressed. I used to go outdoors or if I can't, I'd be in the year writing or listening to music. I don't feel quite a bit normal this time. How about you? Do you feel the spring spirit? What activities are you doing?
